Full confession: I am beyond obsessed with girl group bands.

From the Shangri-Las to Veruca Salt to En Vogue to the 5.6.7.8′s, there’s just something about all-female groups that sparks my inner “girl power” a la Baby Spice (side note: my fave was Posh but now that she’s Victoria Beckham, it’s just weird). And yes, I’m aware how totally cheesy that sounds, but I’d venture to say it secretly does the same for you. Anyway, that’s why I was so smitten when I first listened to all-girl-band-on-the-rise, Dum Dum Girls.

Apart from the insanely rad name, I just can’t get enough of their garage-rock-meets-’60s-girl-group sound and bad-ass style. Get a taste of what I’m rambling about by snagging a copy of their just-released debut LP, I Will Be, or if you’re feeling more old school, surf their MySpace page (yes those still exist). Hope you love them as much as I do!

xox,

    Their song ‘hey sis’ is absolutely amazing. Thank you for expanding my mind.
